Hi there, new member just joined from the UK. I’ve done a search in the forum and it didn’t seem to bring much up so thought I’d ask.

What activities can be done with social groups around Rememberance and the 100th anniversary next week. Trying to think of joyful things to do as well as thoughtful things.

Many thanks

Hi, Claire
The Remembrance celebration this year is very special, the ceremony should include:
Poems - There is something very touching to see an elderly person reading a poem, either alone or together with a son or a daughter.
Blessings and the reading of scriptures - From the Bible or other religious denomination books.
Wearing a Poppy - If possible made by the residents
Craft - Have a session prior to the date to build a colorful poster and/or a garland of flowers for your facility
Singalong - When Johnny Came Marching Home, Imagine, Blowin’ in the Wind.
